Ive League Material.

Yes, that ridiculously clever pun of a title is in reference to one of my new favorites, the Ivy League. Twentyseven Records' newest acquisition isn't just a band, but a story of two good friends.

Ryland Blackinton and Alex Suarez were childhood friends. Two who played music with each other only, but consequently lost touch . For seven years, to be exact, the two hadn't seen each other. Once they met once again, they had travelled and defined themselves. Ryland had been playing with Kite Flying Society and Alex was playing keyboards with members of Parliament/Funkadelic.

The two have finally made a band that is simply awesome. Listing their influences as Simon & Garfunkel, Burt Jansch, Nick Drake, Astrud Gilberto, Of Montreal and the Acid House Kings, it is easy for a listener to be skeptical... they do it... well.

I assume these guys have been pounding the blogs with post request, because I believe that they would be under our radar... we're lucky to have them. Listen to this track. It's pretty awesome. Tell me what you think... I only wish you could hear the other songs... you should definitely buy this.

    any luck with "P is for Penelope"? I may die if I don't get that song soon.

    Penelope is only on the London Bridges EP. Visit twentysevenrecords.com to buy it. You won't regret it!

    Agreed. we're only allowed to post that one song, but buying the ep is no waste. P is for Penelope is an amazing song as well as "Crown Of Love" an arcade fire cover.
